Stoke City are set to sign former Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi on a one-year deal.
The former Nigeria captain, 33, is a free agent having left Turkish side Trabzonspor by mutual consent in March.
Earlier this week he told BBC Sport Africa he was open to a return to English football.
Mikel made 249 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in an 11-year spell, which ended when he left Stamford Bridge in 2017.
He won the Champions League and Europa League, two Premier Leagues, three FA Cups and the League Cup with the London side.
After leaving Stamford Bridge he joined Chinese side Tianjin TEDA and had a brief spell at Middlesbrough in 2019.
Mikel won 89 caps for Nigeria, playing in two World Cups and helping the Super Eagles win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, before announcing his retirement from international football last summer.
Championship side Stoke won three of their last four games in 2019-20 to pull away from relegation trouble and finish 15th under former Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill.

114600527 messisuarez Barcelona : "Nothing Surprises Me Anymore" Messi Laments Suarez Exit

FC Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi has again taken a swipe via Instagram, at the Club Management in his emotional farewell message to former teammate, Luis Suarez.
Messi had last month reluctantly agreed to see off his contract, after feeling that he had been lied to by Club President, Joseph Bartomeu.
Luis Suarez joined Atletico Madrid for 6 million euros in variables after deemed surplus to requirements under new Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman.
The Uruguayan is the third highest goalscorer in the club’s history with 198 goals in 283 games.
I had already began to imagine it but today I went into the dressing room and it dawned on me. It’s going to be so difficult to not continue to share every every day with you both on the pitches and away from them. We’re going to miss you so much.
We spent many years together, drunk many mates, had many lunches and many dinners. So many things we will never forget, all the time we spent together. It will be strange to see you in another shirt and much more to come up against you on the pitch. You deserved a farewell that fits with who you are: One of the most important players in the history of this football club.
Someone who achieved great things for the team and on an individual level. You did not deserve for them to throw you out like they did, but the truth is that, at this point, nothing surprises me anymore.
I wish you all the best in this new challenge. I love you very much.
See you soon friend.

Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi could be out for up to 12 weeks because of an abductor injury he sustained in Sunday’s league win over Burnley.
The 23-year-old missed Wednesday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal and may require surgery.
“It is an abductor injury – it may have come off the bone which could be a nasty injury,” said Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers after the loss to the Gunners.
“We will wait to see if he needs an operation – if so it will be 12 weeks.”
Ndidi has been operating as a makeshift central defender for the Foxes so far this season in the absence of the injured Jonny Evans.
Leicester have won both of their league games this season, to leave them top of the Premier League on goal difference.
